Passing this along as requested.

And thank you, Steve, for being a part of Camp 5. It was a pleasure 
hosting you. It makes me feel good to know that you coming such a long 
way to be with us was worthwhile for you.

TriZPUG and Philipp, Global Hand is a non-profit NGO which facilitates 
the donations and transportation of goods and services from corporate to 
community partners in battling poverty worldwide. They hook people up 
who can fill needs and who have needs and make it happen. They have a 
great Plone site which makes these connections. Check out some typical 
Global Hand user stories:

Hey there Chris,

I just wanted to pass on again my thanks to you for organising the camp5

Coming all the way from Hong Kong, I really appreciated the warm
hospitality and excellent coordination to ensure the conference ran
smoothly. You and your team went out of your way to make us feel welcome
and worked particularly hard to make sure that we were well looked after.

Phillip was an excellent tutor, the food and hospitality was exceptional
and I was especially grateful for the minibus rides to and from the
conference centre! It was also a great opportunity to meet some of the
key Plone actors, and I know you worked hard to ensure a good selection
of them were available to us.

As an NGO seeking to connect corporate donors with other NGO's seeking
to empower the poor, Global Hand has been steadily growing in its usage
of Python/Zope/Plone. Its Plone website facilitates this corporate-NGO
matching and so the camp5 tutition was essential to bring us up to date
with the latest developments in the Plone sphere. So thank you, Chris,
for putting together such a successful conference. I certainly feel like
I got a lot out of it.

Please do pass on my thanks to the rest of the trizpug team who, I know,
sacrificed their personal time to ensure we were well looked after.
Trizpug is an excellent ambassador for other python user groups. And
yes, you can quote me on that if you like!

Kind regards,
Steve Kenworthy
Global Hand
